Rebuilding and Expanding

Started in 2017, the Complex will replace the pre-existing facility originally built in 1948. The new building will include underground parking, new mechanical lines with jacks, as well as industrial spaces. New offices and training spaces (classrooms) complement the updated services and amenities for the personnel.

Consolidation and Efficiency 

The STM’s Crémazie Complex project will consolidate the manufacturing, tooling, and component repair areas as well as the distribution centre, thus optimizing procurement by grouping bus maintenance functions that were formerly housed in various sites. Indoor parking spaces are also provided for buses, allowing for more convenient and effective repairs during the long winter months. The expansion and modernization of the mechanical line will lead to more efficient results thanks to state-of-the-art facilities.
